Niall Horan completes ultimate selfie treble with world's top footballers after meeting Lionel Messi

The One Direction heartthrob looked delighted to meet the Barcelona legend after watching the talented star play over the weekend

Niall Horan has completed the holy trinity of football superstars after meeting his hero Lionel Messi over the weekend.

The One Direction star is footy mad and he looked delighted to have the chance to make it a treble by taking pictures with three of the best players in the world.

Niall posed with the Barcelona legend after watching his team beat Athletic Bilbao 2-1 in Spain on Sunday, and to say he was excited was a bit of an understatement.

He wrote: "Great day at the Barcelona game! INCREDIBLE to meet the best footballer in the world! @leomessi ! What a guy!"

For football fanatic Niall it certainly seemed a rather exciting weekend, as he also got to meet Neymar - another of the game's top stars - and it's good to know they're both so grounded.

The Story of My Life singer just looks happy to be there, and his sporty pal is all smiles in the slightly blurry snap.

Niall said: "Great to meet @neymarjr last night! Super nice and humble guy!"

The team's former boss Jose Mourino let the boys train because his daughters love the band - who doesn't? - and upon his return to Chelsea he even let Niall use the club's facilities to recover from his knee injury . What a top bloke!
